Maybe just maybe some of the Palestinians are finally beginning to open their eyes......

I have said and will continue to say --
If Hamas truly cared about the Palestinians people they would have built underground shelters for the people! Instead they built tunnels to smuggle and hide missile launchers...




http://news.yahoo.com/subtle-voices-dissent-surface-war-torn-gaza-175238594.html

BEIT LAHIYA, Gaza Strip (AP) — The group of neighbors surveyed the destruction wreaked on their residential complex by Israeli bombardment, with building after building flattened or punctured by shells. The men then began to voice something almost never heard out loud in Gaza: criticism of its Hamas rulers.

Exhausted by a month of pounding by Israel's military — on top of seven years of stifling closure of the tiny Mediterranean coastal strip — they questioned Hamas' handling of the crisis and the wisdom of repeatedly going to war with Israel.

"We do not want to be bombarded every two or three years. We want to lead a good life: Sleep well, drink well and eat well," said Ziad Rizk, a 37-year-old father of two, a cigarette dangling from his mouth. He stared at the damaged apartment building where he lived. His sofa and a blue baby carriage were perched precariously on a tilting concrete slab that was his floor.

It is impossible to say how widespread such discontent is among Gaza's 1.8 million residents. Under Hamas rule, it's rare and dangerous to share even as much as a hint of criticism of the government with outsiders.

Still, the men's boldness in voicing their opinions could be a telling sign that some Gazans see Hamas as weakened. It points to how desperate many Gazans have become after the most ruinous of three bouts of major Hamas-Israel violence since the militant group overran the territory in 2007. More than 1,900 Palestinians have been killed, mostly civilians, nearly 10,000 wounded and some 250,000 displaced since fighting started July 8.

Significantly, a Hamas rally last week attracted 2,000-3,000 people, a low number compared to its routinely massive rallies, particularly considering it was held at a time when the group is at war with Israel.

Hamas has ruled with an iron fist since it took over Gaza, expelling the Western-backed Palestinian Authority. It does not tolerate dissent, detains critics and carries out extrajudicial executions of alleged spies for Israel. It has filled government departments with loyalists and is particularly intolerant of any criticism of its handling of the conflict with Israel. It seeks to block unauthorized media coverage of its military wing.

In almost every square and major intersection in Gaza City, giant billboards extoll the battlefield valor of Hamas fighters, their quest for martyrdom and their locally manufactured rockets. Al-Aqsa television, the organization's 24-hour news channel, tirelessly airs Hamas propaganda and reports news with a Hamas-friendly slant.

The men who spoke with the AP were all friends and neighbors who live in the Abraj al-Nada, or Al-Nada Towers, a collection of apartment buildings that was hit hard by Israeli airstrikes and tank shelling on July 17 in the northern Gaza district of Beit Lahiya.

Visiting their wrecked homes with their families during the current truce, they sat outside a tent or in an impromptu shelter they set up — cushions and a rug under a blanket hoisted on four poles, with a small red, white and green Palestinian flag. An Israeli drone menacingly hovered overhead as the men spoke.

Their grumbling is in part born from Gaza's increasing economic hardship. Unemployment runs at around 50 percent. The Hamas government owes workers several months' back pay. The 7-year blockade by Israel and Egypt has choked businesses and jobs.

Even as they shared their views with the AP, they hedged their opinions. They never, for example, expressed a desire to see Hamas removed from power or abandon armed struggle against Israel. They have no love for Israel, though older members of the community fondly remembered the days when they commuted to Israel for day jobs that put food on the table.

"I respect the resistance. The fighters may be spending the night out there in open space facing the enemy while I have the comfort and satisfaction of being with my family," said Loay Kafarnah, a taxi driver who lost his apartment in the shelling.

"But we also want to live. How can we have a war every two or three years? Is that a life?" he said, sitting on rickety plastic garden chairs with a group of close friends and neighbors.

Visible not far away were green fields and trees across the border in Israel. An Israeli train sped by. They could easily see across the border because, they said, Israel several years ago tore down a nearby orchard on the Gaza side that was impeding its soldiers' view in.

"Look at what they have," the 27-year-old Kafarnah said. "Why can't we live like that too?"

His friend, a school teacher who also lost his home, delivered a more pointed criticism of Hamas.

"We have put up with a great deal. They take us to war, fire rockets on Israel from outside our homes and invite destruction to our homes. Fine, but now what?" said the green-eyed teacher in his late 20s, who did not want to be named for fear of retaliation.

"Does anyone in the government know what happened to us? Shouldn't they come offer us help? Or a few comforting words?"

Rizk said he had hoped government officials would be there to take details from residents to offer assistance or future compensation. "But I have been wasting my time," he said.

Ramadan Naufal said his family has moved from the house of one relative to another since the strikes on his home.

"They are fed up with us and I know it," said the portly 46-year-old. So he buys groceries every day for his hosts "to cushion our intrusion."

"This war was something else. No rock, tree or man has been spared," he said, then adding the refrain said by many: "How can we cope with a war every couple of years?"

In the latest truce, dozens of residents of the al-Nada Towers visited their homes to salvage what they can. All seemed stunned and heavy with bereavement, even as they traded greetings with former neighbors, now partners in yet another journey to piece together their lives. Many traded advice on how to seek compensation.

Around a third of the 25 buildings in the complex were crushed in airstrikes and heavy tank fire. Most of the rest are too damaged to live in. Residents collected metal and wood from the debris and loaded them onto donkey carts to sell as scrap. Others looked for pillows, blankets and any usable food items like sugar, tea or flour. Some looked inside water tanks for anything left to bathe with.

Salah Abu Shabab, one of a group of Bedouin who live nearby, said he lost 27 head of sheep, a donkey and a 1984 Mercedes-Benz he used as a taxi. "This is where I buried the donkey," he said, pointing at a mound of dirt.

The 54-year-old and his family of 12 now live in a U.N. school, like thousands of others. He vows he won't leave it until the government assures him of accommodation. "I know the school year begins next month, but that is their problem."

Rizk, the father of two, tried to salvage a rug from his third-story apartment. As he pulled it, the concrete slabs started falling and he gave up, fearing he'd be crushed.

"I have lost everything, so I should at least try and stay alive."

the criticism was always there. the palis were never given the mic to voice their opinions or concerns. now that the IDFholes are losing the war in terms or world opinion, they have to shift their strategy and approach this whole thing differently.

Too bad nothing will come of it, the conservatards will still rule Gaza, and their racist attacks will continue necessitating more defensive Israeli responses.

Sadly you don`t know anything about that time period of the Warsaw Ghetto.....or had family libe through the Warsaw ghetto time period...
I personally would be up in arms in favor of the Palestinians if they had been rounded up from various parts of the Middle east or shall we say various Palestinian Ghettos throughout the Middle east and planted in the Gaza Ghetto knowing full well they were going to be killed.....It must be a demoralizing thing to know that your elected government does not care and to know that they have used your homes and schools and hospitals as places to dig tunnels store missiles, knowing full well that these places will be attacked.....

Some members of the Palestinians have decided that it is worth it to voice their displeasure with Hamas, even though they could be hunted down by Hamas and killed!!


Of course it was not the Palestinians who dug the tunnels but Hamas did and as such put the Palestinians lives in jeopardy.........of course you are use to misrepresenting the facts or bending the truth to meet your needs......

What is sad that you do know that if the Palestinians would take over their own government and their own destiny there would be a 2 state solution!!

My point was not that Israel is or has been perfect.....yet the Palestinian people need to stand up for themselves.....against Hamas.....even in the article it says --

"We have put up with a great deal. They take us to war, fire rockets on Israel from outside our homes and invite destruction to our homes. Fine, but now what?" said the green-eyed teacher in his late 20s, who did not want to be named for fear of retaliation.

Rizk said he had hoped government officials would be there to take details from residents to offer assistance or future compensation. "But I have been wasting my time," he said.

The bottom line is very simple---it is obvious to these Palestinian`s and the world is aware that Hamas does not care in the least!!


Also these Palestinians were in Gaza and as such Hamas has before and could now retaliate by killing them!!

This idea is the very problem.

Hamas wants to kill the Jews, but do not have the power to do so. The Jews have the power to wipe out all of Hamas in the matter of hrs by leveling the area around them. Jews were fighting to stay alive, while Hamas is using the tunnels to kill more Jews. If the Jews had the goal of destroying Palestine they sure are taking their sweet time about it.

This just goes to show that it's not so much the general populace of either Israel or Palestine that wants and benefits from violence but their right wing leaders.

Netanyahu's only saving grace in this is that Hamas is worse.

Well Gaza wasn't blockaded until Hamas launched hundreds of rockets and mortars at Israel after they came into power in Gaza. Egypt was not too happy with the militant activity by Hamas and they blockaded Gaza also.

Quite a different situation. So we get it... You hate Israel. Please keep it all in one thread.

Easiest way to identify an anti-Semite: "The Jews have the right to defend themselves," vs, "The Palestinians have the right to wipe the Jews off the face of the Middle East and the Jews are morally obligated to do nothing but die before the righteous Muslim warriors because anything else would be an insult to Allah's jihad against the filthy infidels," and they take the latter as an unquestionable premise.

You bloody disgusting and hypocritical piece of filth.

I've directly responded to your past whitewashing garbage of:

The rest of us are merely saying that the Jews have the right to self-defense.
No antagonisms by Israel other than the mere presence of Jews? Bullshit. Aggression ain't a defence:

Foreign Affairs

Palestinian Refugees

Canada believes that a just solution to the Palestinian refugee issue is central to a settlement of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, as called for in United Nations General Assembly resolution 194 (1948) and United Nations Security Council resolution 242. A solution to the Palestinian refugee issue must be negotiated among the parties concerned in the context of a final status peace agreement. This solution should respect the rights of the refugees, in accordance with international law.
Canada has played a prominent role in the search for a viable and comprehensive solution to the Palestinian refugee issue, including through continuing to focus international attention on improving the situation of the more than four million Palestinian refugees.

Status of Jerusalem

Canada considers the status of Jerusalem can be resolved only as part of a general settlement of the Palestinian-Israeli dispute.
Canada does not recognize Israel's unilateral annexation of East Jerusalem.

Occupied Territories and Settlements
Canada does not recognize permanent Israeli control over territories occupied in 1967 (the Golan Heights, the West Bank, East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip). The Fourth Geneva Convention applies in the occupied territories and establishes Israel's obligations as an occupying power, in particular with respect to the humane treatment of the inhabitants of the occupied territories. As referred to in UN Security Council Resolutions 446 and 465,
Israeli settlements in the occupied territories are a violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention. The settlements also constitute a serious obstacle to achieving a comprehensive, just and lasting peace.

Canada believes that both Israel and the Palestinian Authority must fully respect international human rights and humanitarian law which is key to ensuring the protection of civilians, and can contribute to the creation of a climate conducive to achieving a just, lasting and comprehensive peace settlement.

The Barrier
Canada recognizes Israel's right to protect its citizens from terrorist attacks, including through the restriction of access to its territory, and by building a barrier on its own territory for security purposes. However, Canada opposes Israel's construction of the barrier inside the West Bank and East Jerusalem which are occupied territories.
This construction is contrary to international law under the Fourth Geneva Convention. Canada not only opposes Israel's construction of a barrier extending into the occupied territories, but also expropriations and the demolition of houses and economic infrastructure carried out for this purpose.
Israel holds the power and the cards. Only Israel, as the occupying aggressor, can de-escalate the tensions.

"The Palestinians have the right to wipe the Jews off the face of the Middle East ...
You bloody hypocrite.

Everyone, listen up. DominionSeraph is among the worst of human beings. Pure evil. He, and other members among us, are terrorising extremist who are hell bent upon the extermination of their targeted population.

Here we have MongGrel to chime in to support resident terrorists and neo-Nazis. Buddy, you have another chance to distance yourself from pure evil.

There is no room for reasonable discussion nor a forum with the bare minimum of acceptable decorum when the ironically neo-Nazi likes of DominonSeraph are present:

[/QUOTE]
There will be no peace until Israel takes the gloves off and inflicts enough pain on the Palestinians...
Israel has the right to prosecute that war until surrender. The Israelis can kill every last man, woman, and child in Gaza as far as I'm concerned, if that's what it takes. If the last one alive is laying there slowly dying, the Israelis come up and ask, "Do you surrender," and he or she says, "Death to Israel," the Israelis have the right to shoot them in the head.

It is sad and pathetic that you have to keep posting this over and over again......

What I find convenient is that you all but come out and wish for the total destruction of Israel and the Israeli people......by claiming that in a sense all israel does is need to stop fighting........be the example in other words.....

You and I both know that ‘If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more violence.
If the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more Israel.

To believe differently is to advocate the total annihilation of Israel and it`s people!


Israel holds the power and the cards. Only Israel, as the occupying aggressor, can de-escalate the tensions.
Wrong.......all Hamas has to do is stop lobbing missiles at Israel and it will stop.
But you know that already......your not that much of an idiot are you??

Then again it`s very easy to take sides when you only know one side!!

Since Hamas' Israeli assisted inception in the 1980's, there have been strong and even fervent levels of criticism against them from fellow Palestinians.

For your propaganda lying line, you deny such opposition. So much easier to vilify and condemn an entire population if they are homogenously portrayed as the evil bogeyman.

Hell, JEDIYoda, it's so much easier for distracting propaganda to lay focus upon the bogeyman. Fatah? Israel continues an illegal occupation, annexation, land expropriation, and militarised supremacist rule in the West Bank, yet another war in Gaza certainly helps divert such gazing eyes and critique away.

When a population faces extreme hardship, siege, expulsion from land, land expropriation, and occupation, then counter insurgencies are expected.

At least a portion of those insurgencies often do take the form of extremist militarism where attempted political goals pressured with criminal terrorism against nor caring for civilians -- much as the terrorist pressure by certain Jewish extremist groups against the British and Palestinians before Israeli statehood.

The current disproportionate offensive in Gaza, just as the past, change no course other than to re-enforce the desperation of the population and provide a continuing recruitment tool for more insurgents -- possibly even more extreme than the past.

Such insurgencies cannot be militarily defeated nor quelled when the elements that created such insurgencies remain. As with the foundation of the State of Israel, eventually, diplomatic solutions must be initiated.

The root causes of such insurgent extremism are of a population forced to endure decades old occupation, siege, ghettoization, and practiced ethnic cleansing as many being refugees who are denied the legal right of return to their now confiscated property.

Israel is in control. Israel is committing international high crimes of aggression. With Israelis drive to attain a Greater Israel, the populations suffering react in the diverse rebelling manners as can be expected. I have presented this before:





Strategic Studies Institute​
and​
U.S. Army War College Press​
STATE COLLAPSE, INSURGENCY,​
AND COUNTERINSURGENCY:​
LESSONS FROM SOMALIA​
J. Peter Pham​
November 2013

A Lesson about Legitimacy and the
Limits of Military Force in Counterinsurgency:

Specifically, if the regime fighting an insurgency is unable or unwilling to achieve internal political legitimacy, no outside intervention will be able to help it to "victory," as even a cursory review of the relationship between legitimacy and military force in civil wars will confirm.

It is a principle that, in civil wars, while military force is vital for insurgents—without it, they pose no threat to the state—it is less important to the governments that oppose them. For the latter, while having capable armed forces and the political will to use them is not unimportant, unless the governments achieve legitimacy, their counterinsurgency operations will ultimately fail. As for the sustainability of any peace, it depends less on a government’s military strength than on its ability to convince the population of its legitimacy, deriving just powers from those it proposes to govern and providing them with reasonable opportunities for political, economic, and social development.
You and I both know that ‘If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more violence.
If the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more Israel.
JEDIYoda, you defiantly scream for indefinite militarism by Israel or the opposition to illegal and expansionist Zionism to flee further afield as refugees all the while to bend over and to take the Zionist expansionists' ethnic cleansing up the ass. The ongoing militarism enables the illegal expansion for a Greater Israel.

A peaceful resolution is not militarily feasible. Evidently, neither is it desired by contemporary Israel. Currently, Israel does not want a resolution with Palestinians as that negates Israeli annexation and colonisation of further Palestinian territory. Therefore, by regularly undertaking strong military measures under the false guise of resolving security issues, Israel is duplicitously fostering the continuance of a rebelling armed insurgency to cover Israel's continued illegal territorial expansion.

Injustice instigates reaction. Palestinians react against the supressing power. The greater the injustice and the length and forceful retaliation upon a denser population only reasonably increase the number who feel cornered into reacting with rebellion and into the realms of crime.

As far as I know, there is zero record of any member here posting for the exact and methodically outlined genocide of Israelis. The opposite is true for the vocal presence of terrorising extremist on this forum who are violently offensive and explicit with their calls to eliminate Palestinians.

JEDIYoda, your record is rich of intentionally posting "logical fallacies or misinformation."

Near daily you run away from existing threads of there very same topic all to attempt to start anew and whitewash away the near presence of any challenges and cemented condemnation you or your neo-Nazi buddies receive.

No growth of discussion. You are only propaganda shill and proponent for a singular side of an issue. Zero room for reason and constructive talk.

If the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more Israel.

To believe differently is to advocate the total annihilation of Israel and it`s people!
JEDIYoda, you advocate total warfare against your opponent. Collective punishment. Criminal.

You lie through your teeth to fabricate against any members who dare critique Israel as assuring their desire the extermination of Israelis. Yet you fear recognition:
It is sad and pathetic that you have to keep posting this over and over again......
.....of the very strong presence of your fellow Israel-the-infallible proponents who concisely call to kill all Palestinians. How we do offend your propaganda intent and damaging your shilling efforts by recognising the very real and vile presence of genocidal advocates among the absolutely-Israel-the-good crowd.

JEDIYoda, you are a bloody lying shill who is doing a strong disservice to the health and long-term vitality of Israel and Israelis.

Whiskey16, agreed on all counts. thanks to the internet, there are a lot more informed people out there. fight the good fight. Mike Rivero posted the piece below on his website whatreallyhappened.com.


...

Let's review the timetable.

In June, three Israeli teenagers were kidnapped and killed in an IDF-controlled region of the West Bank, not Gaza. ISIS has taken credit and even the Israeli media admits that the two suspects named by the Israeli government are not part of HAMAS, but of a group known for disobeying HAMAS and trying to cause trouble for them.

But Netanyahu declared HAMAS, the legally elected government of Gaza, responsible and launched bombing raids into Gaza using the very latest high-tech weapons provided by the US Government and paid for by the US taxpayers.

To put Israel's actions into perspective, let us recall that over the July 4th weekend, 8 people were killed in Chicago. Using Netanyahu's logic, the Democratic party should be blamed and all of Illinois bombed and invaded!

The Gazans, who were attacked without provocation, fought back with their home-made rockets, which so far have mostly knocked a few roof tiles loose.

But to Israel's supporters, we should all forget that Israel attacked Gaza without a valid reason, and view Gaza's attempts to defend themselves as the crime, so that Israel can go on pounding the Palestinians with their superior weapons.

I want to point something out. The Israelis sit in their tanks, or the drone operations centers, or fly high above Gaza in their US-supplied warplanes, dropping the latest in US-supplied high tech lethal munitions, and imagine themselves the heroes they read about in the Torah. The Israelis, clearly unafraid of HAMAS rockets, line the hills overlooking Gaza and cheer the carnage, much as the Romans at the Colosseum cheered as the Christians were thrown to the lions. The Gazans huddle in their giant open-air prison, without an army, a navy, or an air force, and fight back with home-made rockets made out of plumbing supplies.

Not since Thermopylae has the world seen such courage in the face of overwhelming odds. The Gazans have balls the US and Israel can only dream of, and the world will remember their courage against the tyrants.....
